Haymarket Square Lyrics

Artist: Against All Authority
Album: Nothing New for Trash Like You

No one's gonna hold them down today
They're ready to fight for their rights
On May 3rd, 1886
Chicago burned with the fire they lit
The workers were on strike cause money's tight
The pigs were out and looking for a fight
They opened fire into the crowd
A worker was hit and he went down
No one's gonna hold them down
No! They're gonna burn this fuckin' town
August spies denounced capitalism
But he urged no violence
He was addressing a crowd of workers
The pigs ordered him silenced
A bomb was thrown and the silence wailed
A pig laid dead and 8 were jailed
That day the system failed
You know it never fails
If you think you can crush these ideas
That are gaining ground more each day
If death is the penalty for proclaiming truth
Then I'll proudly and defiantly pay
Four men were sentenced to death
To set an example to all the rest
Who would dare to stand and protest
The injustices we all detest
